Surprising uses of items inside a Handbag

Call it an obsession or addiction – women love and hoard handbags. From boxy office bags to weekend party bags, from defined sophisticated bags to funky slouchy bags and of course the fringed boho bags- we have them all inside our Handbag and that “ALL” is never enough! But what amuses most of us is the stuff a woman can tote along in a roomy bag of hers. So instead of having a “what to/ what not to bag” or a “what is in my bag” post, this post is to enlist some of the unusual things & usual things for unusual purpose found in a handbag.  Enjoy

1. Band-aid:

Apart from medical dressing use, this one can help prevent a shoe bite. Just stick it to insides of the shoe where you notice unevenness that hurts the feet and done!

2. Flashlight:

Bulky for some, but smaller versions are also available. And a must have in a travel bag. Serves well in searching for strewn mints in a messy bag too 😉

3. Tea bags:

Dry tea bags for sudden tea cravings – common! Dry tea bags for smelly shoes – not so common! Place a teabag inside the shoes especially post your workout. Tea bags being absorbent work well in getting rid of that odor.
